Cooking smoke is bad for your kitchen. It imparts a sooty look to your beautifully done up kitchen.

It causes respiratory problems and irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. An easy solution is exhaust fan for reducing this kitchen smoke.
But the best way to counteract cooking smoke is to install a chimney in the kitchen. It sucks out the polluted air and keeps your kitchen fresh. In this article, we are going to talk about the Elbaa MX 60, a top-rated kitchen chimney from the house of KAFF. It is a powerful 60 cm chimney with durable cassette filters. It is ideal for homes that do not see a lot of cooking.
Let us analyze the features and design of the chimney in a little more detail.
Technology And Features
The KAFF Elbaa MX 60 is a domestic kitchen chimney with an aluminum cassette filter. Cassette filters comprise of a thick mesh of metal with tiny pores. It acts as a sieve, trapping oil and solid particles present in the smoke and preventing them from floating out with the air. The remaining water vapor, smoke, gases and odors are released into the outside environment through ducts.
Being made of aluminum, the filter is lightweight and easy to handle. It is washable and reusable. You need to wash it at least once a week to keep up the performance of the chimney. To wash the filter, remove the panels from the hood, fill a large tub with boiling water, add dishwashing liquid, baking soda or caustic soda, and soak the filter panels in the water for about 15 minutes. Then, scrub them gently with a dish scrubber, rinse under a tap and leave them out to dry. Once they have fully dried, clip them back into the chimney frame. Remember to wash the panels regularly. If you don’t, grease particles will clog the pores and slow down the suction rate.
Please note that chimneys with cassette filters are not suitable for Indian style cooking. They are more suited to culinary preparations that do not involve a lot of oil and fat. Therefore, the KAFF Elbaa MX 60 is best suited for people who do not cook too often, or who do not fry or sauté their food a lot. It is great for small urban kitchens that see minimal cooking.
The Elbaa MX 60 has Thermal Auto Clean technology. It means you can clean the device with the press of a button. The grease trapped inside the panels is automatically collected in an oil collector which can be emptied and washed off.
The chimney has a long-lasting metallic motor with a suction capacity of 1000 m3/h. The motor has a powerful blower, consumes less electricity and produces less noise. Aided by the ergonomic design of the chimney, the motor draws out every bit of smoke from the room to rid your home of cooking smells.
The KAFF Elbaa MX 60 has a smart stainless steel body. It is wall-mountable and comes with a pair of lamps for lighting up the cooking area. There are 5 push buttons on the front panel for controlling power, suction speed and the lamps. The gadget is low on noise and does not generate more than 62 dB.
